Phantom Lady: Hollywood Producer Joan Harrison, the Forgotten Woman Behind Hitchcock
Chicago Review Press, February 2020

The first biography of one of the most influential women of Hollywood's golden era. Joan Harrison, working behind the scenes, shaped the career of Alfred Hitchcock and became the 'mistress of suspense.'

Author Christina Lane shows how this stylish, stunning woman became one of Hollywood’s most powerful female writer-producers—one whom history has since overlooked.

Christina Lane is the author of the books Magnolia, Feminist Hollywood: From Born in Flames to Point Break, and various essays on gender, representation, and history. Her writing and commentary have been featured in numerous outlets, including Air Mail, The Daily Mail, and NPR. She is Chair of the Department of Cinema and Interactive Media at the University of Miami and President-Elect of the University Film and Video Association.
